    What do you see in the Windows Event Log?

    Crash access violation Dirt 2.0 PC

    Try setting your Windows page file to be automatically managed by the system. System restart is needed after this.

  4. Game is unplayable for me. I have no problems with other games, including Dirt Rally 1. Almost all times the game just closes and drops me back to the desktop without any messages after it finishes loading the track. I managed to get past it once with Windowed mode and then switched back to Fullscreen from the "garage" section before the race. After that it worked a couple of times, but now it does't work again. I tried Windowed borderless and Windowed modes and I got the camera flying above the track for 2 or 3 seconds and then dirtrally2.exe stopped working. Memory usage is very low, it was 2GB for the game and I had 4 GB of free memory. Very annoying, cant play the game. I have a fully updated Windows 10 version 1809 and the latest 19.2.3 AMD drivers with a Gigabyte RX460 4GB VGA. I'm on the Medium Graphics settings preset and have 8GB of DDR4 RAM with an Intel G4560 processor. A couple of times I got the Dirt Rally 2.0 bug report window after this and sent the crash report. Hoping for a fix soon 🙂

    Dirt rally 2.0 crashing constantly

    What is your Windows page file setting? Set it to Auto. You can look into your Windows Event Log to identify the reason.

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    16-235 to 0-255 conversion is not distinguishable on PC's, so I think Xbox One X is also doing a great job. I recommend to try it on RGB full for games and movies too, because you wont't notice anything with movies and games will be better. If it will be worse, switch back to limited, but limited is only recommended with YPbPr (YCbCr) and not RGB, because movies are in YPbPr 16-235 with 4:2:0 chroma.

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    That's not good. Your Xbox one X should be set to RGB Full and your TV Black level to Normal (Full).

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    TV's are supporting both 0-255 and 16-235. You can look it up in their manual: there is a HDMI Black level setting on all TV's that controls this. If you are using your TV with your PC it is recommended to output 0-255 or full range RGB, because PC's are working with 0-255 exclusively and the results gets converted to 16-235, if that is what you set up. Proper TV and PC settings are important because it can cause a lot of trouble with black levels.

    Patch 1.6 - FOV Settings for consoles?

    Ok, but can you distinguish all numbered boxes? If you can't distinguish 1 or maximum 3 it's not a problem, but more is. I think Dirt Rally 2.0 relies heavily on almost perfect monitor settings, while other games are not.

    Can you distinguish all numbered boxes here? If not, it's there is no brightness issue, it's your screen settings.
  11. Definitely a graphics card or graphics driver problem. What Windows do you have? 7 or 10? Is you graphics card overclocked? If yes, go back to stock settings. Can you reset your graphics settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel? Uninstall Geforce Experience, if you installed it and uninstall any graphics related unofficial applications like MSI Afterburner or other graphics performance metric software.
  12. What is in your Windows Event Log when the crash happens? Do you have a manual Windows pagefile setting? If yes, switch back to auto and the problem will be fixed.
  13. "Lowest power, but dirt rally 1.0 looks like 2.0 compared to dirt rally 2.0." Dirt Rally 1 has a lot worse shadow and lightning system than 2.0. Everything looks unnatural and bleak. Grass on the terrain is also a lot better with 2.0. Because of these resource intensive stuffs, DR2.0 had to compromise on the resolution on low powered consoles. "Lowest power, but Forza Horizon 4 has mind-blowing graphics and performance." Forza Horzion 4 is PC and Xbox only game from a first party developer with much more money, time and special support for research and optimization from Microsoft. Codemasters hasn't got any special treatment developing their games and has to do a Playstation 4 version also. Think about this before you go "just go away, expert" on somebody, who know what he's talking about.

    You can buy calibrated Dell IPS monitors for 250-300 USD. The problem is that most people don't care about the proper viewing experience, so they just use their monitors with crappy settings. All they need is an expert to calibrate their display.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Roadbook - June 7, 2019

    Test you monitor with this black level tester and brighten you screen accordingly: "On an ideal monitor, all of them should be distinguishable, even the very dark first row of squares.".
  16. Pace notes are very inconsistent and I struggle with it more and more as I drive faster cars, especially at night. USA stage, almost the end of it. I drove perfectly, I did at least 12 corners labelled as 4. Co-driver says "4 left tightens 3", I go in as usual and I fly out of the corner at the beginning. It was a 3 or 2...driving with memorizing the tracks is faster. DR1 had much better pace notes.

    End of bug fixes

    Early 2000's were good times. People couldn't post on forums urging companies to do something. We bought the game and played it. When a patch came, we installed it, but we didn't care about it in the meantime.
  18. I have no problem with the rain sound using interior cameras. My co-driver volume is reduced to 50, with everything else at the default 100 and I still hear the co-driver clearly over the rain sound. Are you sure you have your speakers correctly set?
  19. But PS4 is much faster than Xbox, so it's a lot more easier to fix. How many times do we have to write this? 🙂 What is easier? Buying a Ferrari for 100,000 USD or for 1000 USD? Same applies here. Fixing for Xbox is a lot harder or it's possible that it cannot be fixed, because it's that slow.
  20. Yeah, the new consoles will come out 2 years from now, so you can stay with Xbox One S for now. Next time, buy the console which is the most powerful and you won't have this problem. Also, you can sit further away from your screen, so you will see a sharper image. Everything looks sharp if you watch it from far enough.
  21. Buy an Xbox One X if you want better graphics. It's 5 times more powerful than Xbox One S and has super sharp 4K resolution with almost all games 🙂 When you buy something get some information first, because you could have seen it on the internet that the Xbox One S has the worst resolution and graphics of all the consoles, so you shouldn't expect super sharp image from it.
  22. FFB is gone on v1.2.1 with a Logitech Formula Force GP. If I switch the device type to Controller from Steering wheel, I have FFB, but its so bad, because it is optimized for gamepads.
  23. Defining a custom device in the device_defines.xml solves the problem according to the Input Device Guide section 6: Manual Data Entry. Thank you Codemasters.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    They said next week....it's above your post and in the v1.4 patch notes. What makes you think we will have it tomorrow? 🙂
  25. Yeah, hopefully it will solve the problem, but my FFB worked before patch v1.2.1. It doesn't take any effort to revert the change that did this, an hour maximum. They could have done it easily in patch 1.3 1 month ago.
